Funds for Breakthrough Ministry grants are provided through the generosity of United Methodist Churches across the Dakotas who faithfully give through their apportionments, Foundation funds, Endowments and Annual Conference Miracle Offerings. Projects supported through Breakthrough Ministry grants include outreach ministries, church/school partnerships, young adult/campus ministries, culture of call, technology and hunger programs.

These projects/ministries should:

  • Be outward-focused (reach beyond the existing membership of the church)

  • Create opportunity for relationship-building

  • Move people closer to a connection with Christ and the Church

Breakthrough Ministry Grant Application

  • New projects are preferred; however, enhancements or new direction of an existing project is acceptable.
  • Acceptance of awarded funds indicates agreement to submit a follow-up report and photos (for publicity) within 30 days of receiving funds and beginning project. Reports may be used in Conference promotional materials (printed, electronic, andvideo).
  • Remember: It is better to have tried and failed than to never have tried at all. Your feedback on all results is needed to make this grant and other programs better. Thank you.
  • Acceptance indicates understanding that all money will be used directly for the above project and specified purpose. Please save all receipts should a review be requested by grantor.

If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact Diane Weller.
